I'm just a simple Joe-Blow, retired from the rat race but retarded by this cesspool of corruption that's becoming our national ethos.
The individual’s Rights is paramount! Mahatma Gandhi’s Civil Disobedience theme was reliant on his principle that “elementary rights of individuals” were more important than the Empire’s political interests. True to his guiding inspiration, even today, the “elementary rights of individuals” IS STILL more prominently catered to but these “individuals” are the nation’s policy-influencing individuals and those entrusted with enforcement powers over the masses!
In all fairness, I believe, even more than the homage and gratitude the bullied patriots pay to the Father of Our Nation, the corrupt mass majority should be compelled to devote much more: percentage-wise! After all, were we still being plundered by the British Raj, it would have presented a serious impediment to the prosperity of our very own indigenous variety of Desi looters, wouldn’t you say?
So what do we do about Corruption, which has become as Desi as Gram Masala and coconut hair oil? Or, should we do anything about it at all since we're acclimatized to the otherwise asphyxiating pong? I believe a good starting place to infuse integrity into our culture is the independent Judiciary and the courts. Fortunately, there are still some judges around who take the old school view toward ethical indiscretions. It is this breed of true patriots that the term “Your HONOR” is exclusively reserved for; who instill a measure of hope for a desirable change in the workings of our Justice System.
